A Word is fitly spoken…originally received January 26, 2021
I heard the literal word, “unprecedented” spoken to me after a time of meditating on a specific period in the prophetic when I received past ministry during presbytery regarding being a type of spiritual water boy in the NFL that I would be bringing refreshing to those around me and then a time of shifting would begin by bringing me onto the field. The minister saw it as significant and influential.
Later that same day after I read Puerto Rico declared a state of emergency over gender violence crisis. As government responds to the plea of the people, Governor Pedro Pierluisi signed an executive order that allocates resources to deal with violence against women. Systematic machismo, inequity, discrimination have caused havoc in the community. The Governor Declared an order to STOP.
I felt the need to share the significant article with family as I did, the word “unprecedented” was released upon me. At the same time, I realized this was being prophetically spoken.
Note: Puerto Rico is U.S. territory! We are walking with God in a new era of leadership and territory within the U.S. Our Presidential position and title continue to be un-claimed as legitimate by either party. While Biden is in office crossing the threshold to hold the authority, at the same time our government has attempted to stripe Trump of ever having claims to privilege past or future as a Presidential title – this is unprecedented.
I believe this word, unprecedented, was released to be a demonstrated throughout the land in our states, churches, families, and nation.
Definition Unprecedented: never known or done before, an adjective – a doing word.
The Opposite Meaning: ordinary, common, or usual
What is the Lord doing: no longer just the ordinary and usual, expect the unprecedented!
Where do we find this word unprecedented unfold in scripture?
Luke 1, we find Elizabeth, who birthed John the Baptist with Zacharias the father and priest.
First, let’s gain insight into a Biblical note regarding Priest & Prophets and their usual roles in old testament.
Zacharias is a priest working in the temple, but priests don’t normally hear from God. Those who hear from God are called prophets, not priests. One becomes a priest by being born in a priestly family line. Prophets, on the other hand, arise unpredictably and have no special credentials except the message they carry. So Zacharias has no reason to believe his duties will be interrupted in this way.
Verse 8 -13
One day Zacharias was chosen to perform his priestly duties in God’s presence, according to the temple’s normal schedule and routine. He had been selected from all the priests by the customary procedure of casting lots for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enter the sacred precincts of the temple. There he burned sweet incense, while outside a large crowd of people prayed. Suddenly Zacharias realized he was not alone: a messenger of the Lord was there with him. The messenger stood just to the right of the altar of incense. Zacharias was shocked and afraid, but the messenger reassured him.
Zacharias was met in an unprecedented way by the messenger Gabriel declaring: Zacharias, your prayers have been heard. Your wife is going to have a son, and you will name him John. He will bring you great joy and happiness—and many will share your joy at John’s birth.
Meanwhile the crowd at the temple wondered why Zacharias hadn’t come out of the sanctuary yet. It wasn’t normal for the priest to be delayed so long. When at last he came out, he was making signs with his hands to give the blessing, but he couldn’t speak. They realized he had seen some sort of vision. When his time on duty at the temple came to an end, he went back home to his wife. Shortly after his return, Elizabeth became pregnant. She avoided public contact for the next five months.
We too friends, those walking with God, will find ourselves going from duty to delight as we are met with the unprecedented – believe He is birthing a new thing through your answer to prayer.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable and pleasing in Your sight,
O Lord, my [firm, immovable] rock and my Redeemer
